A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (version 2)


Published February 20, 2014


LibriVox recording of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (version 2) by James Joyce.
Read in English by Tadhg

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is Joyce’s semi-autobiographical first novel. It traces the early life of Stephen Dedalus and his inner struggle with the oppression of Irish society and the Catholic church, ending with his awakening as a poet and writer and self-imposed exile from Ireland.
“Welcome, O life, I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.”
(Description by T. Hynes, with quote from the book)

Subject: Superb!
I read this book a few years ago and found it quite difficult going. This reading in it's native accent
brought the book to life. To have all the little meanings and nuances delivered with such understanding is wonderful. If you ever wondered about Joyce but were a little intimidated do yourself a favour and try this book. I can't recommend it highly enough.

This is an outstanding recording. Tadhg reads with excellent understanding, modulation, diction, and passion. His accent is perfect for the text. Very glad to have this recording available.
